Alassane Ouattara orders investigation into Gbagbo
Ivory Coast politician Laurent Gbagbo has surrendered after a military assault on his residence in Abidjan and has been put under UN guard.
Forces of his UN-recognised successor, Alassane Ouattara, and French tanks advanced on his residence where he had been ensconced in a bunker.
Speaking hours after the arrest, Mr Ouattara said: "Our country has turned a painful page in its history… here we are finally at the dawn of a new era of hope."
